Badito, off Country Road 620, runs through the BLM land and into the San Isabel National Forest. The beginning of the trail is graded dirt, which soon changes to more of a rough and rocky dirt track. The trail climbs through the pinyon and juniper forest along several rocky switchbacks with beautiful views of the Sangre De Cristo Mountains. It is easily driven in a stock SUV in 4WD, but be careful with any larger exposed rock if you are in a lower-clearance vehicle. After several rocky switchbacks, the trail passes along the eastern slope of Badito Cone and down into a grassy field of Arizona Fescue. Just beyond the field, you are surprised with a campsite with ample room for 4-5 vehicles. The fire ring is tucked within the trees, but you have a direct view of Badito Cone.
